per hour, a newburgher joint just outside of detroit, michigan is rising to the challenge. they are paying their workers a minimum wage of $12 per hour. that's almost $4 more than the minimum wage in michigan. joining me, allen fisher, managing partner of moo cluck moo. i just love that name. you have about a dozen employees so far and the average wage, $14 per hour. if we look at the cost on the menu there, hamburgers start at $3, soda, $2 with free refills. your projected annual sales are between $700,000 and $800,000 so how are you able to afford the higher wage? >> we believe that the people are where it is at for us. we believe in paying our people right because that's what -- it's just the right thing to do. we manage our costs effectively. we use the best product that we can afford and we pass that along to our employees. in working at moo cluck moo, it is not an easy job to do. we demand a lot out of our people but we pay them for that. thomas, we also have a training program that is exclusive to moo cluck moo where each person can qualify for a better job and, alo

, and the underwear bomber in detroit, to place bombs on -- i forget if it was u.p.s. or fedex planes. we took out some of the senior leadership in pakistan and elsewhere. the obsession with drones, i find a little odd in the sense that the question is the war. al qaeda declared war on us in 1996. they vice president chan they haven't changed their mind. we're trying to defend ourselves and go after them. it's not just drones. we, of course, have done what we've done in afghanistan. i mean, would it be better if we were launching cruise missiles at us. they declared war against us, they are threatening us. yes, you know, violence begets violence. but when you have people out there specifically plotting to attack us, i don't think we can sit back and say, well, we don't want to risk making other people mad. al qaeda senior leadership and al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, you know, are actively plotting against us, we need to use the tools that are in our toolbox to disrupt those plots. >> congressman, any thoughts on how long the embassy closures will persist? >> you know, it's hard to say. depend

. this is the group that was behind the underwear bomber on the flight into detroit. this was the group behind the plot last year to try to get an airplane. this is also the group behind the plot to put bombs in printer cartridges aboard cargo planes. they have shown their capability to do this. this is already a very dangerous outfit. >> also before 9/11, al qaeda and yemen with the "uss cole" bombing. pete, thank you. >>> joining me from cairo is nbc chief foreign accordance richard engel. the embassy there is closed. explain the situation there and what you've been hearing about northern africa. >> reporter: if this is the new normal, it is a very difficult status quo that we are entering into for american diplomats. the last several years since 9/11 really american diplomats forced back. they have been surrounded by tons of concrete. now the embassy itself is closed and it makes it difficult for diplomats to get out and interact with people and meet members of civil society which is effectively their job in order to inform u.s. policy. here in cairo, while pete was saying that diplomatic m

. the fire has ripped through 92,000 acres to give you some perspective. that's about the size of detroit. more than 800 firefighters are trying to get that thing under control but it is showing no signs of slowing down at this point. strong winds and low humidity are keeping those flames burning and creating a risk for even more wildfires to break out. >>> meanwhile in new jersey medical marijuana for kids. governor chris christie said yesterday that he supports giving chronically ill children easier access to medical marijuana, but christie still wants some restrictions. he says psychiatrists and pediatricians should have to sign off before children are given the drug. new york city is now appealing a federal judge's ruling that the nypd stop-and-frisk policies are unconstitutional. the city claims stop and frisk is not based on racial profiling and it's also responsible essentially for the city's drop in crime. but according to the court's ruling the numbers tell the sto story. blacks and hispanics accounted for more than 80% of the nearly 4.5 million stops conducted over the last eigh

and extracted that phrase and first used it in the detroit speech and then the speech in washington. >> i think one of the things to remember about dr. king, he was always operating on multiple levels in the context of the speech. he had just visited the university of virginia, only about three months before the march on washington 15 years ago where he was given a very academic speech and really spoke from the professor voice and academic voice about philosophy. remember, the university of virginia is mr. jefferson's university. it is the president, the founder who wrote that bad check, who wrote of course that extraordinary founding document that said we take it as self evident that all people are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights and if if there was any self evidence on the mountain in 1776 than the fundamental human equality and so we see in king drawing on his ak sem i can self and a moment of african-american american woman dom preacher dom and the great historic document. >> we talk about the historic speeches and you can see tens of thousands get
